Discovery -Year 2

Welcome to Discovery Class!


A couple of reminders:

- We are back to taking book bags home and I have a little treat for children when they read at home everyday

- Your child will need a named water bottle in school which will be sent home daily

- Thursday is our PE day, please make sure your child comes in wearing suitable outdoor PE kit


Here's to an amazing year together! I can't wait to see what we achieve together. Check back here regularly to see pictures of all the fun things we have been up to!

Term 3

DT: Making pouches

For the first week of term we have been looking at DT: Textiles. We learnt the running stitch and used it to make a felt pouch.

Term 2

Christmas in the forest

As an end of term treat we got to go into the forest for another whole afternoon and do a scavenger hunt with clues! Mrs Mankelow came too and read our class book in the hammock.

We really enjoyed our Christmas lunch this year...we are so glad that we made it!

Diary Entries

This term our focus has been History. Throughout the term we have been gathering information to inform our final piece of writing: diary entries.  We wrote diary entries as if we were Guy Fawkes. We had great fun getting into character!

In the first week of term Mr Rees came to teach us and we got to play Dodgeball for a competition against other houses in the school.

Giant Firework Art

This week we have started our History topic looking at how Bonfire Night started. We have made a back drop for our display board with pastels. Can you guess what it is?

In Data and Measure this term we are looking at measuring. First we looked at length. We used different resources to measure different lengths around the classroom.

Remembrance Day

We celebrated Remembrance Day by making poppies. This picture was taken by Francis.

Term 1

We had 3 amazing weeks exploring our forest school. We made Mrs O'Brien a get well soon picture out of leaves and we have started reading a new book just for forest school by Enid Blyton called The Faraway Tree.


We have been lucky enough to celebrate 4 birthdays this term and we enjoyed a lot of cake!

Symmetrical butterflies

One of our Maths topics this term was symmetry. To start with we found it really tricky so we looked at butterflies and how they are symmetrical.  We made our own symmetrical butterflies by finger painting patterns on one side and folding them in half.

Herne Bay High sports tournament

In the last week of term we were lucky enough to go and join lots of other schools at Herne Bay High to learn some basketball skills. We had a great time and represented our school BRILLIANTLY!

Our writing

Over the last term we have done some amazing writing. We have written stories based on our dragon book and information leaflets about Kent. We are working hard towards our writing targets and on producing display worthy final pieces of writing.

We ended our term with some much deserved down time and some Halloween activities.

Our amazing displays

We have worked phenomenally hard this term and produced some wonderful display work. Our classroom looks incredible thanks to all the hard work you have all put in. THANK YOU!
